Ben Ooko


Changing the Story

Kibera — in the midst of Nairobi — is now the largest slum in Africa. That’s where Ben Ooko grew up, got into drugs at an early age and looked to be heading down a certain path. His love of football (or soccer as some of us call it) saved him and turned him into a disciplined, focused, team player who would eventually use it to change the story first for young people, and later, in many other ways, for Kibera itself. Now this December, Kibera plays host to an international conference aimed at changing our story of the global economic system.


Support the work of Kibera by going to their Facebook page or by contacting Ben.
